The members of the two crews that will be in charge of the two 1110 feet cutters that the United States donated and already transferred to the Costa Rican National Coast Guard Service already arrived to Baltimore.

The 44 Coast Guard officers are in the Baltimore U.S. Coast Guard shipyard for a three-month training that will allow them to command, navigate and give maintenance to the cutters.

The first challenge Costa Ricans are facing is the inclement weather since this time of the year the snow is persistent in Baltimore
